remmert1, Google says SEV/SME in Ryzen is kinda like SGX in Intel. It is beginning to seem like everyone has forgotten how to search the Internet. I would suggest you look in your UEFI for SEV/SME and if not found (probably), make sure SVM is enabled. SVM is what it is called in my ASRock UEFI and means Secure Virtual Machine. I must Enable it to run Hyper-V, MS's Virtual Machine. Please post what you learn so we can all learn something. If this does not help, ask your SW vendor how to run their application on an AMD rig. Thanks and enjoy, John.
Went to Cyberlink Support and found this concerning PowerDVD 18 Ultra:

- Ultra HD Blu-ray: Intel 7th generation (Kaby Lake) Core i processors and above that support the Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) technology.
- VR Mode: Intel i5-4590, AMD FX 8350 equivalent.
- Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and TrueTheater 3D Playback:
- Blu-ray Disc playback: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 (2.66GHz), AMD Phenom 9450 (2.10GHz).
- Blu-ray 3D playback: Intel Core i5, AMD Phenom II X4.

- DVD playback: Pentium 4 (2.4 GHz), Athlon 64 2800+ (1.8 GHz), AMD Fusion E-series & C-series.
- Note: ** some Fox titles released from Jul. 2013 will not support TrueTheater HD or TrueTheater 3D.
- 4K Ultra HD with Hardware Acceleration:Intel 3rd generation Core i5.
- Note: CyberLink PowerDVD supports 4K Ultra HD video in H.264 / MP4 format at bitrates up to 60 Mbps.
Looks like Cyberlink PowerDVD is not compatible with AMD Processors as far as Ultra HD BLU-RAY is concerned.
FYI: Your motherboard has a very new BIOS update if you are interested: X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE Global
- Update AGESA 188.8.131.52
This is the BIOS Settings for SVM which is disabled normally from your Motherboard's Manual:
